While Roethlisberger has never been close to the athlete Favre was,<a href='http://www.steelerscheapstore.com/t.-j.-watt-jersey-cheap' title='T.J. Watt Vapor Untouchable Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>T.J. Watt Vapor Untouchable Jersey</strong></a>, Big Ben’s game has always been mostly about attitude and toughness., along with his huge arm and great pocket presence

According to our sources, and they are anxious to find a way to get him refocused and playing his game.,<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/...re-paul-jersey-cheap' title='Authentic Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Authentic Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey</strong></a>, the Steelers don’t believe those traits are gone; they’re just concerned that Roethlisberger may still be distracted and uncertain about his commitment

The irony here is that it was Roethlisberger himself who talked about distractions and specifically teammate Antonio Brown after Brown’s sideline Gatorade tossing outburst late in an unimpressive win in Baltimore.

Ben and Brown quickly tried to put it away, Tomlin had one more fire to put out.,<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/weston-richburg-jersey-cheap' title='Authentic Weston Richburg Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Authentic Weston Richburg Jersey</strong></a>, but when several former teammates used it as an excuse to speak up about Brown being much more the diva than many realize and their surprise it is just now coming out

Cam Heyward walked into the Pittsburgh Steelers locker room earlier this week less than 24 hours removed from a humbling home loss to Jacksonville , his portable speaker blasting a playlist that served as a not so subliminal message for a team in search of good vibes.

Al Green was up first, praising the optimism of a "Lovely Day.",<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/paul-perkins-jersey-cheap' title='Authentic Paul Perkins Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Authentic Paul Perkins Jersey</strong></a>, singing about "Love and Happiness." Bill Withers followed

"Just sometimes it just needs to even out, but positive energy is a good energy."," Heyward said Wednesday. "I don't know if it's a big thing or not

Something in short supply at the moment for the Steelers (3-2),<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/bobby-hart-jersey-cheap' title='Authentic Bobby Hart Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Authentic Bobby Hart Jersey</strong></a>, who have spent a large portion of an uneven season trying to put the right spin on one off-the-field headline after another.

There was the "botched' decision to sit out the national anthem against Chicago last month, one that was meant to serve as a symbol of unity but ended with left tackle Alejandro Villanueva saluting the colors by himself while his teammates stood in the tunnel 50 feet away due to a miscommunication.

A week later wide receiver Antonio Brown held a one-sided bout with a water cooler in a moment of frustration after quarterback Ben Roethlisberger failed to find him running free early in a victory over Baltimore, a "temper tantrum" that led Roethlisberger to publicly chastise Brown multiple times and led to Brown issuing yet another in a growing list of apologies for diva-like behavior.

Moments after the Jaguars came into Heinz Field and dealt Pittsburgh its worst home loss in a decade,<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/b.j.-goodson-jersey-cheap' title='Authentic B.J. Goodson Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Authentic B.J. Goodson Jersey</strong></a>, a comment whose intent was lost in translation on social media and elsewhere., Roethlisberger sarcastically questioned whether he still has "it" after throwing a career-high five interceptions

Throw in Le'Veon Bell's frustration over not getting enough carries against Jacksonville's league-worst run defense and the Pro Bowl running back's own Twitter battle with former Steelers safety turned commentator Ryan Clark and it's easy to forget the Pittsburgh is in first place in the AFC North heading into Sunday's visit to unbeaten Kansas City.

Center Maurkice Pouncey good-naturedly chalked up the melodrama to "fake news." Still, there's also a sense that enough is enough.

"As a team I think we've got to learn how to grow up, then we're going to be straight."," linebacker Ryan Shazier said. "I feel like just the NFL in general just so much noise you hear every week and people just need to focus on football. We focus on football

While Roethlisberger stressed he hasn't lost confidence in himself, he also bristled when asked if he'd like to get back to talking about his job instead of the latest dust-up for a team that can't seem to go more than a few days without one.

" Roethlisberger said Wednesday. "As you can see I'm not really shaken by last week,"I think you guys are much more panicked than we are, or nervous and worried so we're getting ready to go play football this week."

 fitting a pattern that's become almost a rite of fall during the team's run to three straight playoff berths. Pittsburgh starts off shaky,Something the Steelers have done only sporadically well so far, drops a couple of seemingly winnable games against teams with a lackluster resume then gets it together late.

 the Steelers were 3-3 before going 8-2 the rest of the way to win the division. In 2015,In 2014, they were 6-5 heading into December but rallied for the wild card. Last year they found themselves at 4-5 after a last-second loss to Dallas before ripping off nine straight victories to reach the AFC title game.

This year was supposed to be different. So far, it's not. Yet there are no concerns about a snowball effect from the distractions — each sparked by the actions of a player or players before mushrooming — having some sort of long-term effect.

" Heyward said. "There's going to be tempers, not everything is going to be perfect,"It's a long season, there's going to be stuff said. It's just about tempers and focusing on what you can control."

And that focus is on shoring up a run defense that's been erratic and getting an offense long on talent but short on touchdowns into something resembling a rhythm and not trying to sew up any signs of dissension, because they insist there aren't any.

" said Moats, that's probably the first time since I've been here we've had to really sit down and have a discussion on something other than football, who signed with the Steelers in 2014. "Any other time,"When we had that anthem thing,<a href='http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/...att-jersey-authentic' title='T.J. Watt Vapor Untouchable Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>T.J. Watt Vapor Untouchable Jersey</strong></a>, it's just media being media or just fans being fans and we just leave it at the door."

Of course, Moats and the rest of his teammates know there's one simple way to put it all to rest.

 people won't be talking about this anymore,"Ultimately we go out here and win this week,<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/...re-paul-jersey-cheap' title='Womens Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Womens Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey</strong></a>," Moats said. "Just got to go out here and win."

Hines Ward thinks he knows exactly what the Steelers' problem is, and it has everything to do with the team's leaders.

 you’re not going to get to where you want to get, but if you have a lot of ‘me guys’ out there,<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/weston-richburg-jersey-cheap' title='Womens Weston Richburg Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Womens Weston Richburg Jersey</strong></a>,“The talent is there,” Ward told 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh (via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). “Someone has to take the leadership role."

 teammates listened. Right now,<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/paul-perkins-jersey-cheap' title='Womens Paul Perkins Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Womens Paul Perkins Jersey</strong></a>, Pittsburgh had running back Jerome Bettis and coach Bill Cowher. When those men spoke,When Ward was drafted by the Steelers in 1998, the Steelers have a lot of guys talking that may not be listening to each other.

 there was some leadership lost after Brett Keisel left,<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/bobby-hart-jersey-cheap' title='Womens Bobby Hart Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Womens Bobby Hart Jersey</strong></a>, and for whatever reason, after Troy Polamalu left and Casey Hampton and those guys,“The Steelers have always done a great job of mixing the older guys with the younger guys and teaching them the way," Ward added.

 was always seen as a guy who would do anything for his team. He was known as much for his willingness to block as he was known for catching passes. Then guys like Bettis,<a href='http://www.giantscheapstore.com/b.j.-goodson-jersey-cheap' title='Womens B.J. Goodson Jersey' target='_blank'><strong>Womens B.J. Goodson Jersey</strong></a>, a 14-year NFL veteran, who may not have been the fleetest of foot,Ward, would always fight for extra yards and get stronger deep in games. That was a lead teammates followed.

Antonio Brown? Getty Images Antonio Brown

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is known as much for getting fined for end zone dances as winning reception titles and running back Le'Veon Bell held out for more money. Meanwhile, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a checkered past and veteran linebacker James Harrison doesn't start anymore.

Many around the league have noticed the rifts in the Steelers locker room and Ward simply echoed those worries.

 the talent is there,“Yes," he said. "But is the leadership there in the locker room?”

Physical Gold


Protect yourself and family from central bank currency debasement and inflation in asset prices, housing, food. There are rising levels of financial, economic and geopolitical risk in the world. In the last 100 years, all currencies have lost 97-99% of their purchasing power. Some believe that the final move to zero will take place in the next few years.

Currency debasement through money printing is the destruction of fiat money purchasing power - $, €, ¥, £, yuan, Venezuelan Bolívar, Argentine Peso, Zimbabwean Dollar...

True inflation and cost of living is currently 8% higher than the government reports. Real wages are falling rapidly and most people are taking out more and more debt to make ends meet. Only the wealthy minority and banks benefit from the current system.

Protect yourself. Buy physical, allocated gold, silver, platinum online and store it in safe vaults outside your jurisdiction (Switzerland, UK, USA, Canada and Singapore) or, at home. Physical gold has limited supply. Buy before the panic!

Look what happened in Cyprus (2013), Greece (2015) and Spain (Catalonia 2017). The lesson is that the money in your bank account is not really yours. It can be taken or frozen by the government just when you need it. Maybe it is not a good idea to keep too much money in the bank, especially when the next financial crisis comes!
